Two weeks remain in the EIVA regular season, and the seeding scenarios are still wide open for the EIVA Tournament.
The EIVA Tournament is the toughest conference tournament to make in NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball. Unlike other conferences where all or the overwhelming majority of teams make the postseason, only the top four teams in the EIVA make its tournament.
The EIVA regular season championship also gets to serve as the host site for the entire conference tournament — both the semifinals and finals.
No. 11 USC needed five games to pull out a victory in the second match of the Big Ten/Pac-12 challenge on Friday.
The Trojans out-hit the Nittany Lions .377 to .256 and were led by opposite Ryan Moss’s season-best 23 kills (on a .513 attack percentage). Penn State was paced by Brett Wildman’s 16 kills from off the bench.
